Hello!
I was thinking to use my cnc mill to do a cnc plasma cutting machine.
Something like having the gun held in some sort of tool holder that I will have to have it made to fit.
Then I was wondering what kind of table i will have to make and use over my mill table so I will not mess it up.My table is about 12x52.
Anyone who did this before??
My mill has a nice travel about 16 on y and about 30 on x.
For what I'm cutting will do just fine.I just nned to cut some brackets and some small parts for my projects.:)
Any sugestions will be great.
I'm planing on using a miller spectrum 625 as plasma cutter and I need to know if this machine will do a good job in cutting up to 1/2 steel quality cut.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
